Dr Ariane Laplante-Lévesque
"My experience as an RHD student has been about so much more than just doing a PhD. I worked at UQ as a lecturer, clinical educator, tutor, research supervisor, and research assistant. I travelled extensively, presented my research at four different international conferences and spent six weeks in Europe on a Graduate School Travel Grant. I wrote a book chapter, designed a continuing education module for audiologists, supervised the work of research assistants and acted as peer reviewer for four different scientific journals. I was involved in the UQ sporting community and also did some committee work. I participated in many sessions offered during Graduate Week and found them especially helpful at the start of my candidature."
Ariane is now a post-doctoral researcher at the Eriksholm Research Centre in Denmark working on hearing loss topics such as the individual aspects of hearing, the environment, lifestyle, personality and listening preferences. She is also a post-doctoral researcher at Linköping University in Sweden.
PhD Student, School of Chemical Engineering
"UQ has offered me the best education to prepare me for what I want to do. I believe that undertaking my PhD at UQ will give me the passport to work overseas in Research and Development (R&D). I have been really lucky to have very supportive advisors, who encourage me to travel, attend conferences and learn by experience outside the office. In my PhD I have been give first-hand experience in R&D work. I work directly with researchers who are developing degradable agricultural film for our industry partner - Integrated Packaging. It is both very challenging and rewarding, turning ideas into practice - it's a feeling that you cannot get from anything else."
PhD Student, Queensland Brain Institute (QBI)
"Doing a PhD at the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) as part of the University of Queensland in the area of vision science has allowed me to work under leading academics in my field such as my advisor, Professor Srinivasan, as well as alongside a number of other students working in the same area. With a number of university offers, I chose to do my PhD at UQ because it offered the best combination of scholarships, project funding and academic support for my candidature."
PhD Student, School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering
"I chose to do my PhD at UQ because it gave me the opportunity to work with the Centre for Hypersonics (CfH). The CfH at UQ is one of the world leaders in hypersonics research, and is a part of numerous international collaborations. Working at the CfH, I have been able to conduct experimental research on some unique facilities and worked with researchers from the European Space Agency (ESA) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It's been incredibly rewarding."
